Notes – This is Alhambra’s entry level model featuring a high quality Cedar or Spruce top or an excellent 2nd stage guitar. Once you have decided you want to get serious with your playing.
Although it is slightly more than some of it’s imitators and it is an entry level guitar in terms of Alhambra don’t let this fool you because Alhambra put only the best tops on their guitars and lavish attention and care on all of their guitars. This is the reason why it is the biggest seller in Australia and around the world second only to the Alhambra 4P the biggest seller at the intermediate level.
The 1C comes in shorter scale lengths of ½ size (544mm) for very young beginners, ¾ (610) for growing players, 7/8 (636) for players requiring an almost full size guitar but not quite stretching enough in terms of hand span. The full size 650 scale length guitar offers the growing student a full size guitar sound in a more manageable playing sized instrument.
More expensive than your bargain basement guitar however the difference is, this instrument will train the musical ear as well as enabling the young player to enjoy the fruits of their musical labour.
